A Gallery of Saints

We are pleased to have released a two-volume record of our stained glass windows in the cloisters – this is also the first time in 100 years that a record of these unique windows has been written.

Chester Cathedral’s cloisters, glazed in the 1920s at the Very Reverend Frank Bennett’s suggestion, Dean of Chester (1920-1937).

There are 34 windows in the cloister with 130 lights (sub-division of a window). Each window has at least one memorial and 147 local people are remembered in this way.

A dedicated team worked with Canon Jane Brooke, Vice Dean to photograph and tell the story of the saint or holy day.
